5 out of 5 stars Not just a top rope

I read a few things about this route being top-rope only, or being potentially lead-able, so I figured I'd just go up and find out along the way. Turns out there is plenty of gear to be had (offset cams helped quite a bit). The last 15 feet is without gear, but plenty easy.

3 out of 5 stars Coincidence?

This was actually my first outdoor ascent also, and on the same day as the person before me O_o!

A great climb for beginners. Fun, not too difficult, and easy enough to anchor from the top!

This was my friend's first outdoor climb! It was easy to set up and a nice first top rope.
